AILEEN PALMER HOLISTIC THERAPY
WHAT IS EAR CANDLING
Ear Candling uses candles made of cotton hollow tubes soaked in beeswax, honey and herbs. When lit, the candle acts like a chimney, causing the warm air inside it to rise and creating a vacuum at the bottom. This vacuum gently stimulates the ear generating a massage like effect on the eardrum, facilitating the removal of excess wax and impurities. This equalises the pressure in the head and ears. During the burning process the administered heat and change in pressure stimulates blood circulation, energy points and secretion flow. Condensed wax residue can work its way to the surface up to 24-48 hours after treatment. It is an ideal healing ceremony for clearing negative energies from the head and using the treatment as an ‘aura restorer’.
HISTORY OF EAR CANDLING
Ear Candling has been used since ancient times by many cultures as an effective natural therapy. Historical roots can be found among the people of the Siberian Prairies, Asia and the native people of North and South America. Shaman healers traditionally used ear candles and they are considered classic clearance therapy. The treatment was devised to rebalance pressure between the ear, nose and throat and its devotees claim the treatment can alleviate many conditions.

AN EAR CANDLING TREATMENT
You will lie comfortably on your side, with your head flat on a pillow, while listening to relaxing music. The Biosun candle is gently placed into the auditory canal while lit at the other end. I hold the candle upright keeping it in place. As the candle burns down, the residue ash will just turn to dust. The candle is then taken away while you lie there for a moment before turning to the opposite side to treat the other ear. You will experience a pleasant crackling sound as the candle burns and a warm comfortable feeling. After the ear candling is finished I will gently massage the neck and face area to stimulate the upper lymphatic’s to encourage drainage.
When finished we will look at the bottom of the candle to see what has been released during treatment.
